ISQua is delighted to collaborate with the Japan Council for Quality Health Care (JQ) to host our 33rd International scientific meeting on quality and safety in health care in Tokyo, Japan 16 - 19 October 2016. ISQua aims to promote and support continuous improvement in the quality and safety of health care worldwide. Japan, with the world's longest life expectancy, has a well-earned International reputation for high standards in medicine and medical education.
The World Health Organisation have recently published the next stage of the Millennium Goals, which have merged into Sustainable Development Goals, of which there are 17. Goal 3 is health and one of its aims is to “Achieve universal health coverage, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all”. To achieve this by 2030, health services will have to change the way we do things.
ISQua’s theme "Change and Sustainability in Healthcare Quality: the Future Challenges’” for the 33rd International conference addresses this challenge.
